Zdravo, ljudi, srećna Nova godina! Ne znam za vas, ali jedva sam čekala da se prethodna godina završi. Decembar mi je bio jako naporan (bila sam čak i malo bolesna) pa sam se primirila i ovde i na društvenim mrežama, ali trenutno odmaram za vreme praznika pa mogu da napunim baterije za sve što me čeka u 2024. godini. Nadam se da će makar biti opuštenija nego 2023. koja mi je bila puna stresa i izazova.
Međutim, desile su se i neke dobre stvari prethodne godine - u oktobru sam počela da treniram u jednom fitnes studiju i to je zaista unelo jednu dobrodošlu promenu u moju svakodnevnu rutinu! Jutarnji treninzi me razbude i lako mogu da nastavim s drugim obavezama u danu jer sam puna energije, značajno sam poboljšala izgled svog tela u odnosu na ranije i ishrana mi je postala znatno uravnoteženija i raznovrsnija! Pored toga, odlučila sam da se suočim s jednim svojim velikim strahom - vožnjom. Ja jesam položila vozački ispit iz prvog pokušaja i dobila dozvolu još pre skoro sedam godina, ali sam nedugo nakon toga imala neprijatno iskustvo za volanom zbog koga sam dugo izbegavala da ponovo pokušam da se opustim u vožnji. Iz tog razloga sam pronašla instruktora koji drži dopunske časove za vozače s dozvolama pored regularne obuke i ne mogu da verujem koliko sam napredovala za tih par meseci koliko idem na časove! Ponosna sam na sebe kad se osvrnem na svoje početke i drago mi je što sam u 2024. godinu ušla svesna koliko mogu da postignem i napredujem.
Za sam početak 2024. godine objavljujem jednu jednostavnu odevnu kombinaciju koju čine mala crna haljina od tankog pletiva, crne čizme do kolena, crna tašna i predimenzionirani crno-sivi kaput (mogla sam da kupim i broj manji). Dok me je slikala, u šali sam rekla Nataši da se u ovoj kombinaciji osećam kao kombinacija manekenke "van dužnosti" i tajnog agenta, šta mislite? Da li vam se dopada ova kombinacija i da li biste obukli ovako nešto?
Isto tako, kao što možete da primetite, vratila sam se svojim tamnijim korenima. Nedostajala mi je moja prirodna boja kose i jako mi je drago što je ponovo jaka i sjajna, bez suvih i iskrzalih krajeva.
Jeste li zadali sebi neke ciljeve za ovu godinu i postoji li nešto lepo što ste postigli ili vam se desilo prošle godine? Ako da, volela bih da to podelite sa mnom u komentarima. 



Hi everyone, happy New Year! I don't know about you, but I was so impatient for last year to be over. December was really tough for me (I was even a little sick) so I laid low both on here and my social media channels, but I'm currently resting during the holidays so I can recharge for everything that awaits me in 2024. Here's to hoping that it's at least more relaxed than 2023 that was so stressful and challenging for me.
However, some good things have happened to me during the previous year - in October I started training at a nearby fitness studio and it really added a much needed change to my daily routine! Training in the morning really helps me wake up and packs me with enough energy to tackle with everything else I have to get done during the day, I significantly improved the way my body looks compared to a couple of months ago and my diet has become so much more balanced and versatile! Apart from that, I decided to face a major fear of mine - driving. I did pass my driver's exam on the first try and got my license almost seven years ago, but shortly after that I had an unpleasant experience behind the wheel that made me avoid attempting to drive again. For that reason I found an instructor that holds extra classes for people with licenses apart from regular ones and I can't believe how much progress I've made in the past couple of months! I'm proud of myself when I look back and see how far I've come and I'm glad that I entered 2024 being aware of how much I can accomplish and thrive.
For the very beginning of 2024 I'm showing you a simple outfit that consists of a little black sweater dress, black knee-high boots, a black bag and an oversized black and grey coat (I could have sized down honestly). While she was taking photos of me, I jokingly told Nataša that I felt like a combo of an off-duty model and a secret agent, what do you think? Do you like this outfit and would you wear something like this?
Also, as you can tell, I went back to my darker roots. I missed my natural hair color so much and I'm so glad that it's back to being its strong and glossy self, with no dry and split ends. 
Have you set any goals for yourself this year and is there something nice that you achieved or that happened to you last year? If so, I'd love you to share it with me in the comment section.

  2. You look absolutely gorgeous and love this outfit! Sorry for your previous driving experience, hopefully, slowly but surely you will be less scared of it and I do agree on the training first thing in the morning, it gives you energy to just continue with your day plus not sure about you but for me, it makes me be in a good mood with a positive atittude afterwards. :)
    Wishing you all the best in this 2024! xx

  14. Meni je ova kombinacija manekenke off duty i tajnog agenta odlična. Divne su i fotografije i odjevna kombinacija. Frizura za deset! Haljina ti odlično stoji, a uz jednostavniju haljinu nekako više dolaze do izražaja te lijepe čizme.
    Kao nešto pozitivno iz prošle godine bi navela profesionalni napredak. Još moram pobijediti strah od vožnje. Vozim pomalo već godinama, ali nikako da se do kraja oslobodim.

    1. Hvala puno, draga Ivana! <3 Čestitam na profesionalnom napretku, a za vožnju samo strpljivo prema sebi. Za vožnju je najvažnija vežba i rutina, sve će doći na svoje vremenom. <3

    1. Thank you very much, Valéria! I can imagine, it's been a huge fear of mine for over six years and I'm still getting over it! It's a process so, once you feel ready, take your time and don't push yourself. Everything will be okay. <3
